Speaking about the awards, Woking Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, Cllr Colin Kemp, said:
“This is one of the best events of the year because we get to celebrate and reward the sporting talent and passion that exists within our borough.
“Whether professional or recreational, sport is so important to our health and wellbeing, which is why the Council has invested so heavily in recent years in modern and inclusive sports facilities for the borough.
“We’re grateful to the coaches, volunteers, teachers, parents and sports personalities, who brings these to life, encourage participation and inspire people to lead more active lifestyles. So if you know someone that gives their time to help others, never misses a match or has outperformed all their rivals, make sure you nominate them so that they can receive the recognition they deserve.”
Winners from the Sport Woking Awards will go forward to Active Surrey’s county-level awards, where judges will decide who deserves the honour of being named the best in Surrey.
